    If I were to tell the truth...

    Post by redabashedenigma on Sat May 21, 2011 1:59 am

    This is my attempt at writing for the possibility of being spoken word, who knows if i'd ever get to "perform it" but yea...

    If I were to tell the truth…

    If I were to tell the truth
    And you were to ask me how I feel?
    I’d look you straight in the eye
    And tell you I feel like a needle
    In a very big haystack
    A needle
    So dull that when you prick your finger
    No blood will be drawn
    I’d tell you
    That every passing day
    A new crack rips into my heart
    As I try to heal another around me
    The very glue I use to seal up others
    Is the exact adhesive that erodes away
    At the heart I bear
    I’d tell you
    That I feel I can be Wonder Woman
    But only I am swallowed by the lasso of truth
    That sharp objects
    Pierce through me
    But blunt forces
    Can barely move me
    I’d tell you
    That when I look at gorgeous women
    My heart drops
    Because I’ll never hold THAT outer beauty
    I’ll never reach THAT extent,
    Never go past my mere “pretty”
    But I’ll tell ya
    that THAT is all I need
    Because MY heart
    Holds more beauty than all those combined
    Of the ones who will look at
    Her
    As she passes them by
    If I were to be honest,
    I’d say I scare myself
    More than you will ever be scared
    Because I don’t know
    What I do and don’t believe
    If you asked for the truth
    I’d tell you
    That this world hits hard
    And knocks the wind right out of you
    But the only way to truly understand
    The pain and joy in this world
    Is to get knocked down
    And have to stand back up
    I’d tell you
    That sometimes I don’t know
    Which way is up
    And which way is down
    But if you spin me around
    I will always find my way
    Right back to the point where I’m supposed to be
    If you asked me three things that I know to be true
    I’d list them right out for you
    One, I’d say
    Is that I care
    Long and hard
    And no matter how hard I appear to be
    It’s just me caring that much more
    I care
    About you more than you will care about me
    I care
    To take on more than I can probably handle
    I simply care
    Two, I’d say
    Is that I long
    I long to be somebody
    Like the childhood dreams
    Of being a firefighter, a doctor, a professional athlete
    I long to cure the world
    Of their heartache and poison
    I long to understand
    Three, I’d say
    Is that I accept
    I accept the inevitable
    I accept the impossible
    I accept the possibilities
    The good, the bad, the bare, the bulky
    I accept, simple
    If you asked me why I look down
    I’d tell you
    It’s because I’M afraid to look into YOUR eyes
    Because YOU may see Me
    For the small, scared child
    That has scraped their knee running away
    The small child inside of me
    That doesn’t know if they can change the world
    But that certainly wants to try anyways
    If you asked me
    If I would die for the life of another
    I’d tell you to give me the time and the place
    And I’d be there
    If I was being honest
    I’d tell you
    I reach for the stars
    Because they shine brighter than the lights here
    And I want to gather them all up
    So I can illuminate your life
    If you asked the truth
    I’d tell you
    I’m a pushover
    Because it’s easier to fall and stand back up
    Then it is to stay standing
    I’d say
    I tie my heart to the string in God’s hand
    But like an excited puppy
    I pull my leash farther and farther away from my Owner
    I fly my kite
    In the wind of injustice
    And fight the winds of hatred
    By yanking at the string
    Of passion and glory
    If you were to ask me to show myself
    I’d paint you a picture
    So intricate that you would be lost
    Even at first glance
    Details so small
    That even I could miss them
    If I were to tell the truth
    I’d tell you
    That I don’t know who I am
    But I’m doing my best to live in THIS life
    THIS time
    THIS moment
    The very best way I know
    By living
